Last weekend, Shu Uemura launched its latest brush eyeliner, Calligraph:ink. As part of the makeup workshop, the team invited me to talk a bit about brush calligraphy techniques. I did a demo of the different strokes you can create and how to use the same techniques in applying makeup. Furthermore, to show how versatile brushes and ink can go, I painted the Calligraph:ink model complete with the very pretty paper lashes.
With intense black ink and a versatile brush that boasts of precision and accuracy, I think that this is the best liquid eyeliner to date by Shu Uemura. :)
Bikes and Kisses
Oh what an honor it is to design the wedding of the year! (Haha!) :) When I first heard of the project, I was certain that it was going to be fun, colorful and bursting with energy. At the same time, I was nervous that my creativity won’t make the cut! I’ve never done anything like this before (and I never really the type of kid who could draw), but I was up to the challenge.
Thankfully, my anxiety subsided when I first met Iya. She’s all sorts of kind, smart and beautiful!!! She knew what she wanted, but also gave me the freedom to let my imagination go wild! Teehee! :) So here is what we came up with, a bit of playful, amusing, friendly and characteristically “Drew and Iya”. :)
I’ll be in the Shu Uemura boutique in Shangri-La Mall this Sunday for a makeup workshop launching their new eyeliner, Calligraphink! :) Will do a quick brush calligraphy demo then Hannah will teach us tips and tricks in using eyeliners! :)
See you there? :) The makeup workshop is free, you may check the schedules and reserve a slot by calling the stores.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Cor 13:13) Faith has to do with our walk with God and how we desire to know him more. Hope pertains to our attitude and how much we trust that God is faithful and sovereign. And finally, love is the action. Once we have the first two, God’s love will overflow through us. Loving others is the natural expression of our relationship with God. He is love. (1 John 4:16)
Showing love to others is our way to share God’s love. I hope that I will not show love because it’s the “good” or “right” thing to do, but because it is a way to glorify Him. After all,
We love because he first loved us. Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister. (1 John 19-21)
Does your faith fully express itself through loving others? :)

Pine Cones and Happiness
Last year, Les called me asking if I could design their invitations for them. It was just perfect timing for me we were able to meet up that same day with his beautiful bride, Kit, and their wedding planner, Tuschia. They told me a bit of their love story and how they chose to hold their wedding in Baguio, the city where they first met.
They just have to be one of the most cheerful, casually playful couples I’ve ever met. When Les wrote a heartfelt poem mid-way in our design process,
Kit was so amused to discover her groom’s inner poet. :))
This invitation suite is all sorts of fun and playful— acorns and pine trees as accents, attire illustrations, a map from SLEX all the way up to the City of Pines!
Thanks to Les and Kit for trusting me with this project!
Of Surreal Sunsets in Bride and Breakfast!
I was browsing through instagram when a beautiful photo from Bride and Breakfast caught my eye. After a moment of appreciation, I realized that I looked familiar. Hey, I designed that!
So I visited the website, and yes. Yes, that the wedding is so beautiful, and Yehey! that I played a hand in it! So with a quick email to the bride, Nicole, I’m sharing you some photos from their wedding. Ink Scribbler designed the fans, table numbers and directed the layout for the sail.
